Rising Nakshatra

Masculine Public-Figure Examples

Uttaraphalgunī - Aryaman

Bhaga - Falgun - Utthram


For Uttaraphalguni births of a masculine valence, the condition of radiant, romantic, intelligent, creative, idealistic, central, confident, gaming, self-reflexive, pitrikaraka Surya may considerably affect the outcome.

For those born into the Surya-ruled paradigm of Uttora, father-figures, politicians, celebrity, royalty, entitled roles, brilliant dramatists, radiant deities, sparkling genius, glittering creativity, intelligentsia, speculators, poets, romantic lovers, gamblers, and game-players may be especially influential.

Uttara-phalguni chaps are famously hot-headed. (Can be counterbalanced by a cool moon.)

Instructional guidance provided by emissaries from the civilizations of Denebola. Their purpose to brighten and glorify the divine intelligence through spectacular creativity.

Brilliantly dramatic

Simha - Leya pada-1 = radiant confidence, flamboyance, and remarkable intelligence. While much depends upon the characteristics of nakshatra-pati Surya, the Falgun birth of masculine valence favors dramatic displays of celebrity, romantic idealism, creativity, and entitlement.

Kanya pada 2-3-4 = equally smart and authoritative, but more focused upon personal enclosure and distant lands, often wielding power from a hermitage, sanctuary, or secluded location. May be an empowered politician of international ability, according to the strengths of nakshatra-pati Surya.

Although Shil Ponde's description often fits the Kanya pada 2-3-4 of Uttaraphalguni, the Simha pada-1 is rarely rough or ungrateful. Still, they can be impatient with others who are less confident or less intelligent.

Themes of political power, radiant creativity, and bright celebrity drama may contextualize Utthram's terrestrial experience. Applies also to Chandra in Uttaraphalgunī - Aryaman


Shil-Ponde. (1939). Hindu Astrology Joytisha-Shastra . p 83

" A proud and arrogant disposition,

  • with a tendency to ride roughshod over other peoples' opinions.

Uttara natives are extremely intelligent

but because of their inordinate pride,

  • they accept favors ungraciously even when in need

and are ungrateful to those from whom they receive these favors."

Karmesha Surya-3 + Budha = The Business Side of Institutional Governance

FDR earned praise for his service as Under-Secretary of the Navy 1913-1920. His administrative skills were complimented by military and government superiors. They observed that FDR understood the commercial aspect of Navy business, such as billing, procurement, and supply chain procedures. When WW-2 forced intense engagement of US military forces across the globe, FDR's Navy background proved valuable. It was said that " the Navy has a friend in FDR" .

Skillful messaging in times of crisis

Karmesha Surya-3 located in the crisis-managing 8th-from-Chandra

Surya became the angel [3, evangelism ] of fear-reducing radio messages as he commented upon the terrifying collapse of "life as we knew it" during Great Depression and WW-2. Every word that was spoken in those traumatic times had to be very carefully crafted [3] .


Dad was a businessman [Sravana-3] with investments in coal and railways. James Roosevelt had earned a law diploma from Harvard University, but he did not practice the attorney's trade. Rather, dad used his legal knowledge to advantage in business.

Dad clerked for POTUS-15 Oregon Treaty 1791-1868 James Buchanan when Buchanan was US minister to the Court of St James [US ministry to UK] . Shortly thereafter, having received a substantial inheritance, he never again practiced law.

Dad and Mom were friends of POTUS-22-24 Grover Cleveland and were regular guests at the Executive Mansion [Whitehouse] during both of Cleveland's separate terms of office.

The Roosevelt family's wealth and political connections were many generations deep.

Dad was widowed and remarried. FDR was the child of Dad's late-in-life second marriage.

Mom = Sara Delano. FDR's mother was an influential and reputed New York City socialite.

She was said to have been very wealthy Somana-yuti-Kuja, competitive, and socially recognized [10] Knowing her son's proclivity toward liaisons and intensely concerned with the family's reputation [10] , she lived with FDR until FDR was nearly 60 years old. Her controlling influence upon his life choices was second to none. Kuja rules 8 and 8th-from-8

Mom openly expressed her dislike of ER, but she threatened [8] to disinherit her only child FDR from the family fortune [effectively preventing his expensive political ambitions] if he ever divorced Eleanor.

[nīcha-Shani-Mesha-8] casts the mentalized 3rd drishti into matrikaraka Chandra-10. Shani constrains [but does not prevent] FDR's ability to follow-through on his Somana-yuti-Kuja sexual-emotional impulses.

  • Lucy Mercer was with FDR when he died in Georgia, far away from ER in New York.
  • Various observers, including his children, reckon that FDR conducted numerous extramarital adventures during his 12 years in the Whitehouse, some lasting many years.
  • ER had legendary adventures with both men and women. Lucy was married for a time and then widowed.

FranklinLucyMercer.JPGLucy Mercer Rutherfurd

FDR fell in love with his wife Eleanor's private secretary, Miss Lucy Mercer Rutherfurd. [Rahu-Vrischika-3, secretary]

[2nd-from-Chandra] indicating 2nd marriage is Karkata-11, marred by [nīcha] Shani drishti upon Chandra in 12th-from-9th ++ [Chandra-yuti-Mangala-randhresha] = mandate to secrecy .

According to the memoires of close observers [including his son] FDR wanted to marry Lucy. When Eleanor Roosevelt discovered the affair shortly after delivering their sixth child, she offered a divorce.

Deep conflict and trauma [8, nicha-Shani] surrounded their social situation. First of all, FDR's wealthy mother Sara Delano threatened to disinherit him if he divorced. Mom was determined to keep the money in the family, with no splitting of the estate.

Secondly, as an observant Roman-rite Catholic, Lucy would not marry a divorced man. Ketu-9.

Historians agree that FDR enjoyed a number of women companions during his tenure as POTUS-32. Yet, his passionate love for Lucy seemed unbreakable.

Lucy eventually married another man, and she remained legally wed for 24 years until her husband died.

Nevertheless, the love link with FDR was sustained secretly [Rahu Vrischika] for decades. FDR called Lucy to his bedside for the last few days of his life, and it was she who sat with him as he died. Their Shani-cycle relationship spanned 29 years = 1916-1945r.

[Kuja-yuti-Chandra] creates a significant dhanayoga in any bhava.

Emotionally, this combination in bhava-8 can be both secretive and explosive.

[Chandra in Mrigashira - Invaka] contributes a remarkable ability to communicate about terrifying topics [8] in a dynamic but emotionally accessible, plain-spoken fashion that nearly everyone in his audience could understand. FDR was the communicator-in-chief during a series of extreme emergencies for the third-century USA including the Great Depression and WW-2.

His unprecedented three terms of office spanned a dire and fearful time of realized and pending disasters [8] . A bloody world-war during FDR's leadership years, provoked by Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler . Kuja activates 6-war containing Shani-Guru-Mesha-blood-war

At the end of the administration, of POTUS-31 Challenge to Liberty 1874-1964 Herbert Hoover, the public banking system had collapsed, and treasuries were once again hidden in private reserves.

The deep suffering of millions of Americans was tangible to all during the continuing Great Depression. FDR was not able to fix the problem completely, but he was able to communicate with the public on matters of fear, terror, and s udden eruptions of unexpected force . These trauma event patterns were familiar to him due to the patterns of his personal life upheavals, especially from dealing with his mother.

Kuja activates Rahu in BOTH Vṛścika [10th navamsha] + Vṛścika 10th dazamamsha

intensely secretive power surging with eruptive danger

FDR was a master of personal and professional secrets. In 1916 FDR started his first and most passionate affair with ER's secretary Lucy Mercer. FDR's subsequent affairs were not hidden from Eleanor, nor hers from him. Yet, their joint and separate adventures were camouflaged by a skilled publicity-management team, including secretaries devoted to each of the partners individually. Since they did not divorce, the public remained utterly unaware of this prominent married couple's passionate secret liaisons during their lifetimes.

On the level of world politics during the dangerous eras of economic collapse and global violence, the president entrusted his wife Eleanor with extraordinary secrets of war, which she handled under proxy powers. Her bhava-12 = Chandra-Budha-Mangala-Surya-Vṛścika powerfully matches his Vṛścika 10th navamsha + dashamamsha, showing that while their personal compatibility was dysfunctionally compromised by 6/8 Chandra positions, their ability to work as a team in high-threat global affairs was immensely functional.

Behari commentary WRT Shani-Mesha-8

"Increased longevity, but educational career, happiness from children, physical health and conjugal relationships are very much afflicted."


[Shani in Bhava-8] rules

  • Kumbha Svamsha
  • 5-children, romance, gambling, creative intelligence, drama, entitlements, genius
  • 6-servitude, disease, suspicion, mistreatment, toxicity, harm, disagreement, ministries of aid to the less fortunate,

Shani activates Kumbha Svamsha = astral orientation to science, economics, marketplace linkages, social networks, communities, connections

[nīcha] Shani 6/8 imbalance from Vṛścika-Rahu-1 = paralyzed by disease. [nīcha] Shani blood-brain disease * [nīcha] Shani, oppression of muscular movement

Shani-yuti-Guru = many physicians. [nīcha] Shani-6 pre-incarnationally planned ignorance of the physicians. The muscle-paralyzing, painfully nerve-destroying syndrome which finally killed him was never correctly diagnosed and therefore never properly treated, leaving him in a state of chronic suffering covering 2 complete Guru cycles [24 years] from 1921 until death in 1945. Today this sudden-onset ailment would be diagnosed as a form of internal poisoning and treated as a variety of Toxic Shock

Marriage challenges begin * secret liaisons

Starting soon after the birth of his sixth child, FDR lived under camouflage [Shani activates 8th-from-Chandra] of being happily married to a partner whom he admired only as a professional colleague, a sister-figure and a friend.

Shani indicates obligatory responsibility to maintain the Social Order Generally, a papagraha in a dusthamsha yields beneficial results due to endurance and maturity of viewpoint.

For all His high-pressure Akashic memory patterning of blood-and-muscles on the physical plane and mental frustration leading to depression on the mental plane [Shani activates depression] , FDR's [nīcha] Shani-6 may ultimately have helped to save the free world. He was forced to deal with some vicious personalities, including.

Shani Mahadasha 1916-1935

FDR was afflicted by many harsh effects of secrecy [Shani activates 8th-from-Chandra] ranging from the extreme psychological stress of secret negotiations during the WW-II years to the personal agony of needing to hide his extramarital loves under camouflage of being happily married to a woman he admired only as a sister and a friend .

Guru ruler of 7th-from-Chandra represents the humanistic wife [Shani-yuti-Guru]

ER continued to personally support her paralyzed husband in social and functions until the end of Shani Mahadasha in 1935.After 1935 she lived independently. Yet during the next Budha Mahadasha, she held proxy negotiator powers, and despite their long-dead marriage, her "decoy" service may have helped to save the free world.

The paralyzing [nīcha] Shani, oppression of movement] , supremely painful nerve-destroying illness which finally killed him was never correctly diagnosed * Shani owns and aspects diagnosis 3 The ailment was therefore never properly treated, leaving him in a state of hidden pain and suffering [8] for most of his presidential years.

Eleanor Roosevelt's Chandra contacts FDR's Rahu-Vṛścika]

FDR had to keep a very close watch on his media image. Photographs were carefully crafted to disguise his lower-body nerve paralysis. His Fireside Chats were written not by speechwriters, handlers or spinners -- but by his own pen.

vargottamsha Rahu-Vṛścika holds in the exceptionally powerful and transformative Vṛścika [10th navamsha]

RAHU = ambition, quick-uncoiling, foreigners, breaking taboo

Rahu in shad-ashtaka 6-8 challenge-angle from [nīcha-Shani-yuti-Guru]

Rahu in [6th-from-Chandra] = a life of service to those criminal, exploitive, and adversarial in nature, whose ambitions [Rahu] have no limit

Extreme personalities

08-Nov-1932 elected POTUS-32 * 32 days after Adolf Hitler was installed as Reichskanzler Deutschland, FDR was sworn into the office of the 32nd presidency of the USA. * Rahu-1

  • FDR was POTUS-32 during 1933-1945.
  • Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler was the dictator of Germany during 1933-1945.

15-Feb-1933 assassination attempt in Miami FL. FDR survived but Chicago Mayor A. Cermak was killed. * Shani-Rahu bhukti

Budha-Rahu bhukti decease age 62

The circumstances of departure from the flesh body were hidden occurring at a private camp in Georgia far from Washington D.C., ++ due to emotionally sourced illness Rahu in 6th-from-Chandra , in the company of his lover Lucy Mercer = FDR's most intense liaison among several.

Accounts from the time say that FDR had promised his wife Eleanor Roosevelt never to see Lucy again. Yet, the hidden love-pair continued their relationship secretly for decades. It was FDR's own daughter Anna who called for Lucy when FDR was dying.

Camouflaged from the society-eyes of Washington D.C., FDR died, aged 63, a physically [Mesha] broken man . Lucy Mercer had been Eleanor's personal secretary and therefore Lucy knew everyone in FDR's friends-and-family network. Eleanor was said to have been shocked and angered when informed that that Lucy had been summoned to FDR's bedside by daughter Anna.

Public Shock

Since its 1921 sudden onset, FDR's profound illness had been skillfully covered up [8] by his public relations handlers [3-public relations] . Therefore news of his dematerialization on 12-Apr-1945 was met with utter shock and grief across the U.S. and around the world.

The violence of these sudden endings threw much of the world into a state of terror [8] . Yet Dwight D. Eisenhower orchestrated a successful conquest, celebrated as V-E Day, on 08-May-1945.

This risky and untried maneuver posed a greatly uncertain gamble [Eisenhower has D-9 Mula Chandra, granting an acceptance of massive risk] . It might have created massive destruction for the Allies. But it worked, showing the public some proof of the possibility of regeneration and rebirth after a time of awful fear.

18 days after FDR's decease, Germany-Nazi 1889-1945 Reichskanzler Adolf Hitler purportedly committed suicide on 30-Apr-1945r.

[oratorical-evaluating Rohiṇī-2] [vargottamsha] [navamsha Ketu-Urisha]

  • [Ketu-Urisha] financially dissociates from collections * breaks-up compulsive acquisition * incomplete containment * assesses the ineffable * dissolved treasury * martyr to pleasures * disregards conventional valuations * not limited by historical knowledge * incoherent lineage * ignores restriction on speech-voice-sight * releases a rich blue cloud of hoarded goods into the misty abyss

  • [Ketu in classroom-9] disinterested in fixed credenda * wandering worldview *disengaged from faith doctrine * disregards theory * liberating philosophy * irrelevance of patriarchal dogma * ambivalence toward conventional convictions * spacey father * weird beliefs * empty public guidance * forsaken by preceptors * ignores the ordinary understandings * incoherent ideology * unless other graha in 9, may prefer to live free from father-figures



Ketu occupies bhava-9, effective draining dharmasthāna of much of its power. FDR had no particular doctrinal affiliation nor principled ideological agenda.


His father was by all accounts a benevolent and caring man who spent time with his son. Yet, but due to dad's advanced age and health frailty, dad was a weak figure far dominated by FDR's energetic, much-younger mother.

vargottamsha [Ketu-Urisha] occupies 4th-navamsha, suggesting that the lifepartner wanders from the home.

Separated but not divorced, ER moved into an independent house at the onset of his Shani Mahadasha in 1916. Toward the end of his life when a very sick FDR asked her to return to live with him, she refused.
